Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do. People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop confidence, new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of your motivation, volunteering is both challenging and rewarding.

Council Tax Support can help towards the cost of your Council Tax charge if you are on a low income or in receipt of other benefits. You can claim if you are working and your earnings are low.
